    I say the parent/s are irresponsible by letting their child stay home from school & play with a BB gun w/o supervision; besides, there are also 2 conflicting stories to this news piece. So the real question/s are this: WHY wasn't the child in school? WHERE were the parent/s WHEN this is happening? WHO ALLOWED this child to play w/his BB Gun before school and no supervision was present?
